A man opened fire on law enforcement officers who were serving an arrest warrant at a home in Suquamish. Officers returned fire and the man was fatally shot, according to the Kitsap Sun.

No police officers were injured, the Sun is reporting.

Officers from the Port Gamble S’Klallam and Suquamish tribal police departments and  Kitsap County sheriff’s deputies, arrived at the house at about 3 p.m. They spoke with the man named in the arrest warrant, and he let them inside the house, according to the Sun.

A second man, who was sitting on a couch in the house, pulled out a gun and fired at the officers, who returned fire, the Sun says.

The shooting prompted a standoff that ended shortly after 5 p.m.
